Are the Patritots intrested in dealing with the Seahawks again?

According to the Boston Globe the Patriots are reportedly very interested in acquiring the services of Seattle wide receiver, Darrell Jackson. Last year, the Patriots sent disgruntled wide receiver, Deon Branch to the Seahawks in exchange for Seattle's 2007 first round draft pick.

Despite missing the final three games of the season last year, Darrell Jackson still made 63 catches for 956 yards and 10 touchdowns. Just for a little comparison, the leading receiver for the Patriots last season was Reche Caldwell, who had 61 receptions for 760 yards and 4 touchdowns. Jackson would be a huge upgrade over the pass catchers that are currently in Boston right now. New England went the entire season without a #1 receiver and still made it to the AFC Championship game, which they lost for among other reasons because their WR kept dropping balls. With possibly adding Darrell Jackson and them already signing Adalius Thomas this offseason and not to mention their two 1st round picks in this year's NFL Draft the Patriots are going to be looking might difficult to beat next year.
